Why Move to Durham

durham nc

Durham, NC is among the fastest growing and most exciting cities in the country. Once known for its booming tobacco production, Durham has transformed itself into an up and coming city with numerous James Beard awarded restaurants and an ever-growing tech scene. Being home to Duke University and part of the Research Triangle Park, one of the most prominent high-tech research and development centers in the U.S., Durham has easily attracted thousands of new residents looking for a fresh start. Still unsure if this could be your new home? Here are the top 5 reasons people are moving to Durham and loving it:

  1. Jobs: As the hometown of Duke University, which employs over 8,000 people on campus, it should be no surprise that job opportunities abound in Durham. In fact, the city’s unemployment rate (3.8%) is well below both national (4.4%) and state (4.7%) levels. Duke is the top employer for the area, but Durham also contains the Research Triangle Park, the largest science park in the country, which employs more than 50,000 people. But hey, if joining an existing business isn’t your thing, don’t fret: Durham’s creative culture and abundance of young talent make it one of the best cities for entrepreneurs.
  2. Bars & Restuarants: Durham has a wide variety of food options to serve many different palates. In recent years, the city has attracted world-renowned chefs, bringing numerous prestigious James Beard awards (the Oscars of food) to the small southern city and delicious cuisine into the mouths of locals. Whether you’re looking for some seafood from the 2020 nominated chef Ricky Moore at Saltbox Seafood Joint; locally sourced and sustainably produced food at The Durham from the award-winning Andrea Reusing; or a fusion of Spanish and southern tapas at Mateo from a 4-time James Beard semifinalist Matt Kelly (just to name a few), Durham has a wide variety of cuisine attracting a lot of foodies to the area.
  3. Nature: Durham is a city for nature lovers. Surrounded by parks, gardens, and protected forests, it’s easy for one to escape the hustle of city life and catch a breath of fresh air. Right in the city’s back yard is the American Tobacco Trail, a 22 mile abandoned railroad corridor that was converted into a paved greenway for walkers, bikers, and runners to enjoy. If 22 miles of trail isn’t enough check out Duke Forest. The University manages much of the forest in the surrounding areas for research, teaching, and recreation. Go just 10 minutes outside of downtown and you’ll find yourself near Duke Forest. The forest is filled with trails for local hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and even horseback riders.
  4. Cost of Living: As compared to other major technology cities (and even other affordable cities in North Carolina), Durham is definitely on the lower end in terms of cost of living and the cost of housing. In fact, the average cost of a home in Durham–$182,000–is around $75,000 below the U.S. average.
  5. Culture: Between the museums, festivals, art galleries, and theaters, the city of Durham is rich with diverse activities and experiences. When living in the city there is never a dull night. You can always walk out into the buzzing streets of downtown Durham and find fun experiences to enjoy. Learn more about the thriving arts and culture in Durham.
